Effective Shave with little irritationThe first thing I noticed about this shaver is just how quietly it operates. There is none of the usual shaver ‘buzz’ like you would expect.
My initial shave after a full charge overnight was on about 4 days growth. This was done dry and using a circular motion provided a clean and close cut with little irritation at no nicks at all.
The turbo function is particularly useful for getting through problem areas after a few days growth and found it was really effective on the problem area under my neck.
I found that the most effective shave was when using in the shower with gel, which gives the best of both worlds in regard to electric shavers and a manual razor.
The clipper attachment it handy for keeping sideburns in check and the mechanism to switch between heads is a simple click.
Th Smartclean function is effective and found the head to be completely clear after every clean. It also functions as quietly as the shaver when operation. I did find that it is quite easy to spill the solution when setting up so make sure the surface you use is completely flat.
The only negative I found of the shaver as a whole was the placement of the power button, this may be down to the way I hold the shaver but found I was turning it off during use. A redesign of this might be a thought.
Overall, I am happy to use this shaver on a daily basis due to its close cut and the low irritation is causes.

This shaver is all that is needed for the jobI must admit - after having Philips shavers for the last few years I was tempted buy some of the 'new boys' in the marketplace who seemed to offer similar performance with a smaller price tag. On closer scrutiny I realised that nothing was quite the same as the Philips models I have used over the years.
I took the plunge and bought this 5000 series with the cleaning kit which is a really good way of cleaning and charging at the same.The shaver itself has a turbo function which is really useful. It also has a 'click' system so that you can use assessories such as a cleansing brush which I received from Philips and have found a great addiction.
I also received a 3 year warranty after registering on the Philips Website.
It's early days, but I am very happy with this product.

Excellent shaver and very easy to useA replacement for a Phillips dry electric shaver that I had for about 10yrs. Very easy to hold and use, although I did find that I switched it off unexpectedly if not holding it correctly, however, now sorted and my shaves are uninterupted. The wet shave feature is excellent and my new 5000 gives a much closer and smoother shave, the Turbo feature I find great for finishing off. It cleans exceptionally well and the body of the shaver comes up like new after a wipe with a dry cloth. I live in a hard water area and there are no unsightly marks from scaling so far. I would definitely recommend this product.

Philips S5572/40This shaver on paper looks excellent, great feature with the turbo mode as well.
Personally for me the performance is under par.
On the normal shave setting it takes a while to get rid of short stubble facial hair, much slower than previous rotary shavers I've used - which have all been the ones where the head was fixed into the body.
I don't really have a stubble of steel but the shaver doesn't cope well for my face, it would be great for someone like a teenager who has just started on his, ( or even her ) shaving journey.
The turbo mode does help but it obviously drains the battery a lot quicker.

Philips 7000 series shaverVery disappointed with the shave this product produces for the following reasons:
I have to spend around 15 minutes going over the same areas to get a reasonably close shave.
The design of the product means you can't shave directly under the nose.
Each shaving head has a large plastic bezel around it and the separation between the heads means its hard to target a specific area of the face when shaving, hence the amount of time it takes to shave.

Good quick fast shave Great close shaveExcellent product quick and easy even with a bit of extra growth seems to be able to cope with extra growth unlike my previous shaver from another well known brand which struggled. Easy to clean and the easy clean system works very well charge and clean at the same time. So far very impressed and at a great price too.

Excellent ProductI have just purchased this product to replace my previous phillishave which lasted me for nearly 20 years.
The improvements in the model do not disappoint and the shaver has some great features.
I have now had 4 phillishaves throughout my life and never disappointed with the constant product improvement.
